If you have any questions about data protection, please contact:
This privacy statement applies to this part of our online presence (hereinafter referred to as the “website”) and to other processing as described below in connection with our advertising and communication activities. Our privacy statement does not apply to websites operated by other providers (“third-party websites”) that can be reached via our website. Therefore, within the meaning of Article 4 (7) GDPR, we are not responsible for the processing of your personal data on such third-party websites.
B. Nature and scope of data processing
1. Data processed when you access our website
You are able to visit our website without providing any personal information. We only save the following data in server log files:
- Host name of the computer accessing the site
- IP address
- Date and time of access
- Browser type
- Operating system
- Website visited before ours
We only analyse this data to ensure that the website runs smoothly.
The IP address may be considered personal data because, in certain circumstances, it is possible to work out the identity of the party accessing our site from information provided by the internet provider. However, we only store and process the IP address in anonymised form, so that it is not personally identifiable.
2. Processing data to deal with your enquiries
We collect the personal data that you give us voluntarily when you contact us, particularly if you do so by email.
This data is processed solely for the exchange of emails with you and for the purpose for which you have given us the data, i.e. to deal with your enquiry or to contact you if you have requested us to do so. In such cases, your personal data will be processed with your consent and is permissible in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR.
After your enquiry has been dealt with in full, your data will be locked against further use and deleted after any applicable data retention periods have expired, unless you have expressly consented to your data being re-used or unless we otherwise have the right to store it.
3. Processing data for newsletter requests
If you request the email newsletter we offer on our website, we will collect the following personal data from you:
- Email address
- Confirmation that you have read our privacy statement
- Date and time you provided your consent
- Optional: forename, surname and company name
The email address and choice of topics are to enable us to send you newsletters by email. We are entitled to process this data in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR. We will store your consent and the time at which you ordered the newsletter as a record of the registration process. The legal basis for processing the abovementioned data is our legitimate interest, in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR, which arises from our need to record your consent for us to send you the newsletter in order that we can prove, in the event of doubt, that we have your consent. For reasons of our legitimate interest, we will also store your confirmation that you have read the privacy statement, as this will enable us to record that we have met our data protection obligations.
You also have the option of voluntarily providing your forename, surname, salutation and the name of the company for which you work. If you provide us with this data, we will use it to personalise both our emails to you and the newsletter we send. We will be entitled to do so on the basis of the consent you gave us when you voluntarily provided us with the data, in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, either via the link provided in the newsletter or by sending an email to the following address: email@example.com. If you withdraw your consent by unsubscribing from the newsletter, we will delete the data you provided when registering for the newsletter, unless the data is subject to statutory retention requirements or we are not otherwise authorised to store it.
4. Processing job applicants’ data
If you apply to us for a job by email or post, we will collect the following data as part of the application process and in order to fill the post:
- Salutation, surname and forename
- Email address
- Further information and documents, such as your cover letter, address, curriculum vitae and certificates that you provide us with in connection with your application
Your data will only be used to make an employment decision in relation to your application and so will only be forwarded to the person responsible for decisions about the post for which you have applied. As part of this process, we will be able to transfer your personal data to our affiliated companies, including our holdings, if this is permitted by the purposes and legal bases described. If you do not apply in response to a specific job advertisement (if you make a speculative application), we will use your data for all of the vacancies that meet your requirements at the time you send in your application.
We are entitled to process the data in this way in accordance with Article 88 GDPR, in conjunction with Section 26 (1)(1) BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act).
We will delete your data after the application process has been completed, and no later than after a six-month retention period, unless we are legally required or permitted to store it for a longer period.
If applicable, you will receive an invitation for inclusion in our talent pool. Your data will only be stored beyond the six-month retention period if you have given your consent to inclusion in the palero talent pool. We use the talent pool to find suitable applicants for posts. Your data can then be viewed by departments at palero and by employees involved in the appointments process to check your profile against vacancies. We will delete your application data for the talent pool after five years unless you request us to delete it before that time or unless you consent to an extension of the storage period before the end of the five-year period.
5. Use of unsolicited data
If there are other instances where you provide us with your personal data without being asked to do so (e.g. by providing a business card, either in person or by post or email), we will transfer the data to our address management software and store it there. The basis for our actions is Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR and our legitimate interest in the efficient management of our business contacts’ data and in ensuring that such data is used in accordance with data protection regulations. We will delete this data if you ask us to do so, provided the data is not subject to statutory retention requirements or we are not otherwise authorised to store it.
